A New Push For Women Politicians

DENVER--At today's "Unconventional Women" event at the Democratic National Convention, Women's Campaign Forum President Ilana Goldman launched her "She Should Run" campaign to get 1,500 new women to run for office. Goldman said that "we were pissed" not enough women are in Congress or statehouses. She pointed out that women make up 14 percent of members of Congress, 15 percent of governors, and 25 percent of members of state legislatures.
